I left Ohio over 30 years ago and wouldn't even consider going back due to the winters there. LOL before long 50 degrees will feel cold to you.
It is absolutely ignorant a state can tell a person they can't protect themselves by having a gun with them on a long journey. Heck in the old days between the Indians and the critters you probably wouldn't have made that trip alive. Today could actually be just as dangerous due to people acting like savages.
